Our children

7 years, 3 months old
loves reading more than anything
very modest in her clothing choices
gets weepy when overtired
makes "hide-outs" all over the house
growth spurting like crazy, eating us out of house and home
loves to ride her bike
didn't cry when she got her flu shot
enjoys going to PATS on Wednesdays
super defensive of her brother, even towards us
loves to ride in the jeep
very, very literal
won't wear shirts with buttons or collars - calls them "boy clothes"
a true creative: spends time writing stories, designing clothes, making building modifications on her doll houses, and more
taking horseback riding lessons
prefers her hair in a ponytail most days
Mommy still picks out her clothes each night 

4 years, 1 month old
hates sandwiches
loves to rub Pepper's ears
almost done with naps
asking about playing baseball and/or basketball
covers his eyes when people kiss on tv
fast runner
has a crazy sweet tooth
calls vanilla wafers "banilla wifers"
had to be held down to get his flu shot
loves helping to grocery shop, carry things for mama
tends to argue to try to get his way
true boy: loves to roughhouse and wrestle with Daddy
favorite job at preschool: line leader
second favorite: door holder
hates bandaids

Their favorites:
the library
reading books before bed
mama's homemade bread
getting candy from Mr. Andy on Sunday mornings
playing ball with Daddy
letting Pepper ride in the car
waffles and syrup for breakfast
reading books
skipping naps
making art with glue and popsicle sticks
bathtime in mama's bathtub
watching Saturday morning cartoons
Friday night pizza & a movie
riding in the jeep with the top down
hanging out in the student building at church

Tucker begs his sister to read to him almost constantly, 
which is not her favorite thing to do -
she would rather read to herself because "it's faster, Mommy!"
She has learned to negotiate it out with him - 
"After I finish this chapter, I'll read a book to you, Tucker."
He's learning to be patient.
